4 signs it’s time to quit that job

Filed under: Personal Finance |
Many of us are reluctant to rock the boat at work during tough economic times. After all, what happens if you cause problems — and your superiors decide that it’s time for someone to go? If you are a “new guy” or an “outsider” or just someone the boss isn’t too sure of, you could be the first to go.
In the past few years, many people found themselves trying really hard to hold on to jobs that they may not have wanted when times are better. However, now might be the time to find a new job, and take charge of your financial future.
Jobs data is improving, and the labour market seems to be picking up. That means that now might be the time to quit, while you can do so on your own terms. Here are 4 signs that it might be time for you to move on:
You really hate the idea of going to work
We all have days that we don’t want to go in to work. We may even dislike what we do for work. But do you really hate the idea of going in? Do you spend so much time worrying about what will happen when you go to work that you don’t enjoy your time away from work? If this is the case, it might be time to find a new job, or even start a business.
You are concerned about the values of your boss and co-workers
Many of us have our own values and ideals. However, if you find yourself questioning the values and ideals of those around you at work, it could be an indication that you are out of place.
Your boss might not be doing anything wrong, but the priorities and actions of the organisation might not jive with what’s most important to you. If you feel that you are incompatible with your organisation, it might be time to move on.
You wish you had more challenging assignments
For some people, easy work is preferred. It’s about clocking in and clocking out. However, you might wish for more challenging assignments. Do you feel that your work offers you the ability to grow and expand?
If you want to progress as a person, a job that doesn’t provide you with an adequate challenge can be disheartening. Now that the economy is a little more stable, you can look around for a job that offers more satisfaction.
You feel like an outsider
Does everyone at the office seem to have inside jokes? If you feel left out of the culture at work, it might be a strong indication that you belong somewhere else. You want to be in a work environment that you feel a part of.
If you have been with an organisation for more than a few months, and you still feel somewhat awkward, as though you aren’t making the transition to your new company, it might be a not-so-subtle sign that you need to find an organisation where you integrate into the culture a little bit better.
The cultural aspects of your job are just as important as the technical aspects. When possible, try to find a job that allows you to feel as though you are doing something worthwhile, and that provides an environment that you are comfortable with.

Punch journalist wins academy of science award again


Bukola Adebayo
For the second year running, a journalist with Nigeria’s most widely read newspaper, The PUNCH, has won the Nigerian Academy of Science  Media Award.
A senior health correspondent with The PUNCH, Bukola Adebayo, emerged the Science Journalist of the Year (2013) at the award ceremony, which held at the Protea Hotel in Ikeja, Lagos, on Friday.
The Editor of Sunday PUNCH, Toyosi Ogunseye,  had won the highly coveted science prize in 2012.
The award-winning newspaper last year clinched most of the outstanding journalism awards in the country. Some of the top prizes won by The PUNCH in 2013 were the Editor of the Year; Press Reporter of the Year; Judicial Reporter of the Year; the Action Photography award; Best Editorial Writing award and the Informed Commentary award.
But, at the gathering of foremost scientists in Lagos on Friday, Adebayo’s investigative story entitled, On The Track of Blood Merchants, won in a shortlist that included Kemi Adejumo of Business Day and Chukwuma Muanya of The Guardian Newspapers. Adebayo’s story, published on February 11, 2013 edition of The PUNCH, is an expose on the activities of commercial blood donors in the nation’s hospitals.
The panel of judges, chaired by Prof. Gabriel Adewoye, said The PUNCH entry for the prize received overwhelming commendation from every member of the panel for its exemplary contribution to science.
He said, “This story calls for action in the health sector as people rather choose to sell their blood for commercial purposes instead of donating it voluntarily as it is done in other parts of the world.”
Challenging journalists to be more committed to their duties, Adewoye urged them to look beyond the surface and to dig deeper to tell stories that impact on humanity.
He congratulated The PUNCH on its efforts at grooming award-winning journalists.
Adewoye, who commended this year’s winner for her bravery, said the story did not only expose the blood sale cartel in hospitals but also educated the public on the dangers in receiving blood transfusion from unverified sources.
“There are cases where people have contracted deadly diseases in the process of purchasing and receiving blood from illegal sources like the commercial blood donors. It is a deadly trade that is killing people in the society,” he added.
Adebayo while receiving the award said her work was intended to draw government’s attention to the inadequacies in the health sector.
She said, “Many patients are dying because there is an acute shortage of blood in the nation’s blood banks. The report was to shed light on the plight of patients in government hospitals.”
The Academy’s Executive Secretary, Dr. Doyin Odubanjo, noted that the award was to encourage journalists to X-ray under-reported issues that would impact directly on the lives of the citizens.
Adebayo, a holder in Biochemistry from the University of Ilorin, Kwara State, went home with a plaque, cash prize and a Samsung tablet.

How to make your Boss Regret Hiring You

Your first few weeks on the job can set the tone for your relationship with your boss throughout your entire stay at your new company. Handle yourself well, and you can quickly start to be seen as a valued new member of the team. But misstep, and your new boss might start wondering if she should have hired you in the first place.
Here are nine ways you can go wrong in your first weeksat a new job.
1. Start out with all the answers. Your first few weeks at a job are about learning how your new company works. If you come in sure that you know everything and already raring to make changes before you get to know the environment, the people, and how and why they do things, you risk looking naive and arrogant.
2. Come in late, leave early or miss work in your first few weeks. When you first start a job, people don't know much about you, so everything you do takes on more meaning. If you come in late, leave early or take time off early on, you're more likely to raise fears that you're a slacker than if you do the same thing once you've establisheda track record as a strong and reliable worker. (Obviously, there are exceptions to this, such as if you have a legitimate medical need or early arranged time off as part of your offer negotiations.)
3. Ask to work from home right away. As with coming in late or leaving early, this can be OK to do once you've established a track record of good work. But if you ask for it too soon, you're more likely to look like you're focused on ways not to be at work than on the work itself.
4. Get involved in office drama.While getting drawn into office drama never looks good, it will reflect even worse on you if you jump into it while you're new. Plus, at this stage, you don't know enough to take sides, and you could be aligning yourself with the office complainers or slackers without realizing it. So be friendly to everyone, and stay neutral when it comes to any office factions.
5. Appear bored or disengaged.Managers wantpeople around who are glad to be there and truly engaged in the work they're doing. You might not always love your job, but if you already appear bored in your first few weeks, your new boss is going to wonder if you're regretting taking the job -- and if she should be regretting hiring you.
6. Ignore the culture. Cultural fit is hugely important and can hold you back just as much as a lack of skills can. If the culture is neurotically on time for meetings and you stroll in late, or if most people stay focused on their work while you're chatting up a storm, you can quickly come across as tone-deaf.
7. Don't pay attention while you're being trained. Few people can remember everything they're told in their first weeks on the job, so if you don't appear to be engaged in your training, you're likely to send off alarm bells for your boss and new co-workers. Make sure that you're paying attention, taking notes, asking questions when something isn't quite clear and periodically checking to be sure your understanding is correct.
8. Appear overwhelmed. To be clear, feelingoverwhelmed when you start a new job is normal. You're having loads of new information thrown at you, and you won't be able to retain it all. But if you appear to be knocked off balance or second-guessing your decision to take the job, you won't inspire confidence in your new boss. Instead, show that you can handle new situations with a reasonable degree of calm.
9. Compare things to "how we did it at my old job." It might feel like you have a better way of doing things, but if you jump in with comparisonsbefore getting to know why your new workplace does things differently, you're likely to miss reasons why those ideas wouldn't work here or finding out that the ideas have been tried previously. And your new co-workers are likely to find constant remarks about "how we did it at my old job" irritating more quickly than you might think. 
10.Discussing your Take home.
It is true that the main reason of taking a job is to be able to offset your bills and take care of your needs,but being too conscious of your pay and always talking about it might send a wrong signal to your boss.
Keep striving to get there.

World Malaria Day: Prof. Onyebuchi Says Nigeria Made Progress In Malaria Elimination

As the world commemorate the Annual Malaria Day, attention has been drawn to the need for a renewed commitment towards its control, elimination and ultimate eradication in order to avoid undue reversal of efforts.
During the celebration in Abia State at the Women Development Centre, Umuahia, the Minister of Helath, Professor Onyebuchi Chukwu, told reporters that Nigeria had made a tremendous progress in elimination of Malaria and would continue to do so until it is totally reduced to zero percentage.
In his speech, Governor Theodore Orji elucidates on the efforts the state had made so far to minimise the scourge and hinted that health care would continue to be a priority for his administration.
A Fight For All Nigerians
Stakeholders on health, community leaders, women organisation and dignitaries from all walks of life gathered at the Women Development Centre, Umuahia to mark the World Malaria Day celebration.
An occasion which offers the opportunity to interact and share experiences as well as strategise on the ongoing efforts to eliminate malaria.
For the Minister of Health, “prevention of malaria is a fight for all Nigerians and notwithstanding the billions of Naira that has been committed in its eradication; government is not relenting as it is mapping out new strategy to fight it. The State government, through its Malaria Elimination Programme, has put up strategies in several thematic areas in order to prevent malaria.
Donor partners and stakeholders on malaria prevention also stressed the need for more commitment towards eradication and effort to tackle the challenge of utilisation of some of the measures that had been adopted in prevention of malaria.
The office of the wife of the Abia State Governor, Mercy Orji, was fully involved in the celebration as the office organised a road show and rally demonstrating the need to sleep under treated insecticides nets to prevent malaria.
The Theme for this year Malaria Day Celebration “Invest in the Future “Defeat Malaria” is significant and a clarion call for policy makers and citizens to work together in protecting the children, the future generation, against Malaria.
